Library

All of the libraries throughout the district have a mission to help students to develop into independent, self-sufficient thinkers who embody the necessary skills to locate, evaluate, and analyze information sources.  Furthermore, we will encourage a passion for literacy through our promotion of reading and writing.

In order to support our mission of developing independent thinkers who are passionate about literacy, library materials will be selected to support these goals. The materials selected will inform, educate, explain, describe processes, foster morals and values, and entertain students. Moreover, materials will promote cultural diversity and cover a side array of topics of interest to students and faculty broadening their knowledge of the world around them. Materials will reflect multiple viewpoints and manifest in print and non print formats. Finally, all materials housed in our libraries will support district and state curricular goals.
